Are you going mad with the holidays? I am! I can't believe Christmas is less than two weeks away. I've barely managed to get my Christmas cards out and I've gotten gifts for only one person. ACK! This is definitely my favorite time of the year, but there is so much still to do!!!
I used to be the type of person who started decorating the weekend after Thanksgiving. My tree went up, the Christmas music filled the house and I made cookies with my niece and nephew. I'd drive around the neighborhood to see the lights and decorations people put up in their yards. I'd enjoy searching out gifts for all my relatives and close friends. By this time, in the past, I would've had most of my shopping done and I'd be wrapping the gifts and arranging them under my tree while watching It’s a Wonderful Life, A Christmas Carol or The Holiday.
But this year, I have yet to even put up a single decoration! After Thanksgiving, I kept putting off the holiday activities because I had too much to do. I figured I had plenty of time to get the work done and once I finished my other work- edits, cleaning, job hunting, day jobs- I'd have plenty of time to do my shopping. But this past Tuesday, my publisher told me my next book, Simple Treasures, would be available on Christmas Day. When I pulled out my calendar and realized it was only TWO WEEKS away, I panicked! I've got soooooo much still to do and, if I want to enjoy any of the season, I better get busy as soon as possible. So, while you are visiting here and the other sites for the Mistletoe Madness Blog Hop I will be jumping in, feet first, to my holiday plans.
Now, it is a holiday, gift-giving time of the year, so I am planning to give you a present! Tell me. Are you all ready for the holiday? Do you enjoy it?
